There cannot be a bigger occasion in recent times for The Manchester of South India, Coimbatore, which has been depressed, and justfiably so, for some time because of the palpable neglect by Indian Railways, than having its UDAY Utsav on June 8, 2018 on dedication to the Nation its First UDAY (Utkrisht Double-Decker Air-Conditioned Yatri) Express, the heavy-duty service between the salubrious cities of Coimbatore and Bengaluru.
Travel between these two cities has been really tough with no dedicated train and meagre seats in whatever that has been passing through Coimbatore. Under
these circumstances, people of both cities have been asking for a simple super fast overnight connection daily, but Railways probably thought of an upgraded one and gifted them with UDAY, which, though not the most preferred, people accepted gleefully.
The concept of UDAY Express was announced two years ago in Railway Budget 2016 and has been branded as a luxury train for business travellers. UDAY Express caters to the busiest routes and increase carrying capacity by about 40%. Meant for reserved passengers, the UDAY Express boasts of unending features like food vending machine, WiFi, LCD screens, anti-graffiti wrappers, bright colors, an area for passengers to enjoy meals, to list a few.
The flower decorations for the loco is done by me and my rail friends and I sincerely thanking The Rotary Club of Coimbatore South and my well-wishers for sponsorship. Momentos, sweets were given to Loco Inspector, LP, ALP, Guard , Station Director and other Railway officials.
"Say No to Plastic",
Cotton bags were distributed to Passengers and Public's.

Voting multiple times in the same poll using multiple IDs, rating each other IDs' blogs using multiple IDs, etc. are classified as "gross misuse". . This is an advance notice that some of the...

The voluntarily posted Blogs, Train/Station Tips, Train/Station Pics, Polls, Train TTs, PNRs, etc. comprise the permanent publicly viewable and searchable repository of IRI. A PUBLIC info website is unlike WhatsApp, FaceBook, Instagram, etc. where people post personal pics and other stuff, which CAN...
